Asian Chicken Salad
Lean poultry meat provides plenty of digestible protein for satiety and is also suitable for all those who have to keep an eye on their blood fat values. Celery has a diuretic effect and can thus have a positive influence on high blood pressure values.
Serve the salad together with wholemeal bread. The fibre in the bread also keeps you full for a long time.
